    Stirling Marathon

    The Stirling Scottish Marathon is back, bigger and better than ever!

    Starting and finishing at Kings Park in Stirling, the marathon and half marathon takes place on Sunday 11th October 2020.

    Run the most picturesque marathon in the world! The winner of the men’s and women’s elite competition will walk away with a £2,000 cash prize. There are cash prizes for the top three runners in each age group.

    Participants of the Stirling Marathon have raised hundreds of thousands of pounds for their chosen charities since the first edition of the race in 2017. By choosing to join a charity team you not only help incredibly worthy causes, but you will also be giving yourself an extra incentive to get out the door for those unappealing training runs.

    The full Marathon takes the following route:

    For the prospective marathoner the half marathon gives you a great taste of the marathon experience by taking place on the same marathon course. The route is as follows:

    “Run through the heart of Scotland and run through history”

    On Saturday 10th there is also a 5km run, a 3km Junior run and a free to enter Family Mile to kick off a weekend of fun and fitness for all the family. The Stirling 5k forms a key part of the Stirling Marathon Festival. Taking place at the Kings Park on marathon eve the 5K is a perfect warm up for the main event or an opportunity for your partner to be involved in our special weekend of sport. For 9 to 15 year olds, the 3k Junior Run will provide a great experience for the younger members of the family. There are prizes for the first three boys and girls in each age group. And finally, the Stirling Mile is a fun event for mum and dad to join in the festival of running with the younger members of the family. Toddlers age 3 to youngsters aged 8 can take part.

    The morning will see the popular Family Run taking place within the grounds of Kings Park at 9am before the Juniors get underway in the Stirling Scottish Junior at 10am and finally the 5km event 11.15am.
